PMID:  11173039     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Recent studies, including those based on genomics, have demonstrated that besides toxins and adhesins, Bordetella pertussis uses many additional virulence determinants. Most of them are part of the BvgAS regulon, although some, in particular iron-uptake systems, are independent of BvgAS. They are regulated by iron, although in one case, the production of a siderophore receptor could be linked to the BvgAS regulon.
